Mantaraya Lodge is located near Machalilla National Park in the Province of Manabi, a 5-minute drive from Puerto Lopez. The lodge was constructed in a Mediterranean style and has airy hallways, warm colors and terracotta roofs.
Mantaraya's close proximity to Machalilla National Park makes it ideal for travelers seeking to explore the Costa Rica's tropical dry forest. Machalilla is distinguished by its abundant number of plant and tree species. The park also highlights the country's wildlife and birds.
Mantaraya Lodge features several spacious matrimonial suites, double rooms, triple rooms, single rooms, and family suites. Each room is tastefully decorated and creates a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. The prime location of the lodge enables guests to enjoy the sea and sand of Costa Rica.
Mantaraya's dining experience is a real treat. The lodge has an expert chef which carefully prepares national and international delicacies which will please every palate. Only the freshest local ingredients are used and guests have the option of either enjoying their meals in the lodge's spacious dining room or al fresco.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
